Kiwis Storm Masters of Harmony

Kirt Thiesmeyer, Jan 18, 2007

The Musical Island Boys from Wellington, New Zealand, visited the Masters of Harmony on Wednesday night, January 17, and showed why their lilting and synchronized sonorities captured the 2006 International Collegiate Quartet Championship. Mixing English and their native language, they thrilled the gruff and jaded - but enthusiastic - MOH audience, who were heard to remark, "Oh, wow!" "Far out" and "Ooooohhwweeeee!" Articulate, earnest and handsome, the "boys" are Victoria University students sharing the magic of barbershop harmony with young people all over the United States. We will be hearing much more from these talented songsters. Pictured from left -- Jeffrey Hunkin, tenor; Marcellus Washburn, lead; Matthew Gifford, bass; and William Hunkin, bari.
